It was three years ago on December 7, 2019 when respected Comrade Kim Jong Un participated in the inauguration ceremony of the newly built Yangdok Hot Spa Resort and personally cut the tape.
Since then, the Yangdok Hot Spa Resort, the best of its kind in the world with the assortment of characteristic service facilities, one-storey/multiple-storey dwelling houses, ski resort and horse-riding ground, has been serving as a cultural/recreational service facility for the working public, making a huge contribution to the promotion of public health.
The Yangdok Hot Spa area is a display of architectural beauty with elegant gabled roofs of reddish hue, the embodiment of Juche-type architectural art in all its majesty and beauty. This place is now all the more thriving with numerous people coming to enjoy winter hot spa despite the frosty winter weather.
Permeated in the Yangdok Hot Spa Resort that may as well be termed the wonderland of socialist civilization, are traces of love and dedication of respected Comrade Kim Jong Un for the sake of our people’s happiness.
It was August 15, 2018 when respected Comrade Kim Jong Un visited the hot spa area of Yangdok County for the first time.
Our people still cherish deep in their hearts the memory of the historic day associated with dangerous mountain pass, torrential rain, respected Comrade Kim Jong Un ’s glasses fogged up with rain and vapour from the hot spring and his clothes that soaked up in the midsummer heat.
Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un personally measured the temperature of the spring water which was well over 80℃ and tasted it that day. He also gave detailed teachings to the relevant officials and showed them the way to build the spa resort.
In the year 2019 alone, he visited the construction site several times in the months of April, August, October and November, looked into the issues arising from the construction and explained down to the minutest detail on how to address them. Thus, he put his heart and soul into the construction of the hot spa resort, the best of its kind, where people can get necessary treatment and enjoy cultured way of life to their hearts’ content.
Yangdok hot spa began its operation for medical purposes 1500 years ago. Till the liberation, it was frequented only by a handful of feudal dignitaries and the wealthy few. Today it has been transformed into a wonderful recreational facility for the people both in name in reality in the current era of the Workers’ Party of Korea by dint of respected Comrade Kim Jong Un ’s ardent love for people.
Yangdok Hot Spa Resort is also equipped with a characteristic ski resort and a horse-riding ground as befits the comprehensive sports and recreational facility, adding vigour and animation to the cultured and recreational lives of the visitors, which would subsequently improve their health.
This land will continue to resonate with laughter of our people enjoying the socialist civilization to their hearts’ content, for we have the wise leadership of our Party with noble intention.
